Facilitating exceptional conservation results


Aligning Visions publications are "how-to" manuals full of practical tools for conservation nonprofits.  It is a pleasure and great privilege to work on new materials with different clients and keep improving and evolving core ideas that repeatedly surface over the years. In some cases, clients ask for program assessments, papers or publications that are, by their nature, confidential.  However, in other  cases, helping a client develop the materials they need, provides useful fodder for other organizations as well.   These publications, are not peer-reviewed in the scientific publication sense, but are constantly being tested, and frankly, are always works in progress.   I hope some of the ideas will be helpful to you.  Thanks to the clients who encourage this work!
